About Me

With our rapidly ageing population and predicted increase in disability among the elderly, Able Ageing aims to make specialist assessment and rehabilitation accessible to those who need it, when they need it, where they need it. Alan has an ambition to increase awareness in Ireland of the importance of high quality, individualised community care to help mitigate against the health risks of older adulthood, improve quality of life and decrease the need for acute hospital admission and long term care. My areas of specialty include comprehensive geriatric assessment, driving assessment, falls assessment and rehabilitation, seating and postural management, home equipment & adaptations and Dementia Care.
